Report Details

We read about the wave run-up study in the paper (http://www.newportnewstimes.com/v2_news_articles.php?heading=0&story_id=...) and decided to check it out. See photos below.Dead birds that I saw (there were probably more):- 9 common murres- 1 grebe- 1 chicken (!!)There was a crab pot with its full rope, from the vessel Quila-J, 541-332-9047. Perhaps someone can call the number and tell them we found their lost pot :-)There is a railroad tie with the tie plates still attached. It has good marine growth so it has been in the ocean for a while. However the wood looks fairly new. Definitely could be tsunami debris.Nearby there is also a complete telephone/power pole, also with quite a bit of marine growth.Enjoy the photos...
